No solution or patch was made available for at least one year since disclosure of this vulnerability. Likely none will be provided anymore. General solution options are to upgrade to a newer release, disable respective features, remove the product or replace the product by another one.
The flaws are due to: - An error in the usage of a specific field used for incrementing an array index. The application will copy the contents of the specified element into a statically sized buffer on the stack. - An error in parsing Office Art record, when parsing an office art object record, if an error occurs, the application will add a stray reference to an element which is part of a linked list. When receiving a window message, the application will proceed to navigate this linked list. This will access a method from the malformed object which can lead to code execution under the context of the application.
